Whether it’s simply because you want to turn the volume up a bit, or it’s because there’s a sound level fault on your AirPods, or AirPods Pro, here’s how to make them as loud as you need.
There is potential issue to do with accessibility which may make one AirPod quieter than the other.
- On your iPhone, go to Settings
- Choose Accessibility
- Scroll to the Hearing section
- Tap on Audio/Visual
- Check the Balance setting
If the balance slider is not exactly in the middle, you’ll notice the difference in loudness.
We’re not the only people to have noticed that exposure to loud music has a damaging effect. The European Union has spotted this too, and Apple pays attention to the EU. There is an EU recommended maximum volume for earbuds and your iPhone may be set to observe that.
